With over 30 years in the industry, the owner of three salons and the experience of working as an international platform artist for Aveda and Redken, Chip Perry has trained thousands of hairstylists around the world to help them achieve their dreams. He is honored to bring this knowledge and expertise to Illuminate Salon in Charlotte. “Illuminate is the exemplification of my career. A co-op of supreme craftsmen doing what they love.”

While having a diverse knowledge of cutting and haircolor on all textures and lengths, Chip’s most notable points of difference are his accolades in hair color and hair color correction.
